Barbecue pork belly might be my new favorite food. This newly moved and reopened steakhouse on the edge of Long Island City. I was here for barbecue, but when I stopped by at 12 the beans weren't ready. I came back and glad I waited. The food here is downhome style 'cue and mighty satisfying. The ribs and pork belly are sensational, porky, smoky, and meaty. My first barbecued pork belly and that is addictive. Beans were a sweet side and collards could have been smokier. They were flavored with garlic and pulled pork instead of the traditional fatback. Service here is still working on getting it right, but the 'cue is worth the trip.
